Shortly after the 2012 application for admission went “live” we published 10 tips to assist with communicating with our office and obtaining information.  For ease of reference all 10 tips are summarized here for easy reference.  Each is a hyperlink to the full entry.  We hope this allows you to obtain information quickly and communicate clearly with our office.

1.   Always use the same email address when communicating with our office – this includes the email you use when you start your application. In addition we recommend NOT using an employer email address and always including your email address in the signature of your message (below your name).

2.  Avoid Unnecessarily Creating a Duplicate Online Application.

3.  Avoid copying several parties on the same email and avoid long emails.

4.  Thoroughly review our FAQ Page.

5.  When leaving a voice mail message speak slowly and clearly, state your telephone number twice, and note your city/time zone.

6.  If you must mail something to our office use a private mail courier and request receipt confirmation.

7.  Check out our student, alumni, faculty, staff interview page.

8.  Familiarize Yourself with Expenses and Start searching for fellowships/scholarships/grants as soon as possible!
